First prize in polyp segmentation

MICCAI 2018Team OUS, which consisted of PhD candidate Hemin Ali Qadir (OUS, UiO), Postdoc Younghak Shin (OUS, NTNU) and Professor Ilangko Balasingham (OUS, NTNU), participated in the Gastrointestinal Image ANAlysis (GIANA). GIANA was a sub challenge held at the 21th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) in Granada, Spain on 16th of September, 2018. This year competition was competitive as 21 teams from different top universities around the world participated. The OUS team developed two methods using deep learning networks and advanced image processing techniques for polyp detection, localization and segmentation. The team won the first prize in polyp segmentation task while they were at the third place for polyp detection and localization tasks. See animation of the concept here.

New OR's with intraoperative CT and videofluoroscopy

Hybrid ORsThe opening of three unique new operating rooms took place at The Intervention Centre at Oslo University Hospital on October 5th 2018. A CT scanner can move on rails from a garage between two adjacent OR's. One OR has full angio equipment with the robotic videofluoroscopy system SIEMENS Pheno which can be combined with intraoperative CT. The second OR can combine intraoperative CT with surgical procedures. The new OR's have been developed in collaboration with SIEMENS Healthineers with funding from Research Council of Norway through the NorMIT project and Oslo University Hospital. A Symposium was held before the official opening of the OR's. State Secretary at the Ministry of Healthand Care Anne Grethe Erlandsen stood for the official opening of the new OR's. See a video from the new OR's here

The HoloViz 3D project in National Innovation Report

HoloLensThe HoloViz project originating from The Intervention Centre is one of 18 projects listed in a national research report. The report was assigned to the four Regional Health Authorities in Norway by the Ministry of Health to highlight multi-disciplinary research and innovation facilitating improved health services in 2017. The HoloViz platform has been developed in collaboration with Sopra Steria. Clinical applications based on 3D holograms have been developed for congenital heart surgery, heart valve surgery and liver metastasis surgery. The HoloViz project has received funding from South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority The objective of the project is to transform medical images to holograms tha clinicians can use to plan complex surgical treatment interventions. The image shows a multi-disciplinary team studying a 3D mixed reality heart model.

Training and first clinical use of the navigation system CAS-ONE from Cascination at The Intervention Centre

HiperNAVOn December 4th 2017, surgeons at The Intervention Centre, Oslo University Hospital, were trained on the navigation system CAS-ONE from Cascination AG, the main industrial partner of the HiPerNav project. This system allows visualization of the liver models in 3D as well as tracking of the tools. Tools are tracked using an optical tracking system by equipping tools with reflective spheres, as used in motion capture.
On December 5th and 6th, the CAS-ONE system was set up in the OR for three clinical laparoscopic liver resections for an early assessment of the navigation system in such procedures. During surgery, the system provided surgeons with 3D patient specific liver models. Without compromising sterility, the surgeons themselves could interact and reposition the models using the touchscreen, covered with a sterile drape. The whole navigation workflow was demonstrated and possible bottlenecks were discussed.

New PhD on Laparoscopic surgery in the treatment of ductal adenocarcinoma in the distal pancreas: Surgical and oncological considerations

Dr Mushegh SahakyanOn December 14th 2017 surgeon Mushegh Shakyan at The Intervention Centre and Institute of Clinical Medicine at Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo defended his thesis on Laparoscopic surgery in the treatment of ductal adenocarcinoma in the distal pancreas: Surgical and oncological considerations. Title of the trial lecture was "The role of surgery and chemotherapy in treatment of locally advanced pancreatic cancer". First opponent was associate professor Bergthor Björnsson from Linköpings University, Sweden, second opponent was professor Mustapha Adham from Edouard Herriot Hsopital, France. Main superviser was professor Bjørn Edwin. Abstract: Surgery is the cornerstone in the treatment of ductal adenocarcinoma in the body/tail of the pancreas. While open distal pancreatectomy is considered as a standard procedure in this setting, data on laparoscopic resections is scarce and limited to few reports.
This thesis aimed to investigate the role of laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy in the management of ductal adenocarcinoma. Surgical and oncologic outcomes, as well as factors related to patient selection, extent of surgery and prognosis were examined in the single- and multicentre studies. Hospital records and prospectively collected databases were reviewed.
